Oh god I still play blue regularly, I will have to go search it out tomorrow but I can remember on my last playthrough I just beat the elite four and got mewtwo, I caught all the possible pokemon in blue version but didn't do any trading. I always nickname pokemon in first and second gen.

The batteries in my Yellow cart gave out awhile back, same with my Gold cart.


All the more reason to (eventually) finish White.

plus I have no Color/Advance with me so I wouldn't even be able to look.

But I played all of them through multiple times, so there's that.

brb, trying to find Yellow cart


Edit: 

Hitmonchan 41
Mewtwo 78
Charizard 41
Articuno 60
Blastoise 41
& PIkachu of course 41

71 hours my my. No idea I played it for that long ... first and last Pokemon game I ever played. 

The biggest surprise of all though is that my GBA SP is still holding a charge after what must be at least 6 years since I turned it on last.

Have my copy of Blue lying right here, not played in ages. Don't remember much except Blastoise was my main.
It also have my full name and address on the backside from when I received Mew from Club Nintendo.

Yeah, same here. I do, however, remember clocking in over 200 hours on my last save.

Yeah, you might turn on the game and just have no save file on the cart anymore. It even happened to my yellow version while it was still the most recent pokemon game.

@Kyle: Shite. Just checked my gold cart, the save that I left on it since I finished it originally is gone. I assumed that I could preserve that for future generations.

@WalkerTR77:  I think there's a chance the  save will come back if you don't overwrite it. Not sure though.

My Red cart is at 255 hours (the timer capped at 255 in RB, possibly Y too). All 151 pokemon, in order, in boxes 1-8, with event stuff in some of the other boxes (and Stadium prize pokemon like Amnesia Psyduck, etc)
My Blue got started again about a year or two ago when I heard about the Mew glitch (for those that don't know, someone eventually figured out a way to catch Mew in RB(perhaps Y, too) without cheating devices or save file corruption).
My Yellow is at about 50 hours, at the E4.
Lost my Silver cart when I moved late last year, dunno where it is :/ and it was my most played 'mon game at 650 hours, 251 dex, etc.
Gold cart didn't save anymore, so I got a friend to replace the battery for me.
Crystal cart is 110 hours or so, pretty much everything done.

My Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, FireRed and LeafGreen carts are all pretty much empty as I moved their contents onto Pokemon Box.
My DPPt/HGSS stuff is all over the place.

This thread made me spend 10 minutes searching round my room for my Gameboy SP, but when I spotted my Golden Triforce encrusted handheld I stuck in Pokemon Red and heres what I found.

 

Charizard - Lvl. 44

Beedrill - Lvl. 40

Primeape - Lvl. 40

Mr. Mime - Lvl. 44

Dodrio - Lvl.40

Kingler - Lvl. 41

 

I seem to be on the road to the Elite 4, somewhere in Victory Road, I should probbaly try and finish it.

That cart like encapsulates my childhood. I cannot remember a day between the ages of 6-9 where I didn't have my Pokemon Red fix. Lugging that grey behemoth of a system wan't even a pain back then.
